How to Kill – Outdoors
BUGGSLAYER Insecticide is extremely effective at killing stink bugs. If you are using a hand pump sprayer, mix BUGGSLAYER concentrate in the amount of four ounces to one gallon of water. This provides the proper ratio for spraying the perimeter of your house. Spray the BUGGSLAYER mixture around doors, windows, eaves and soffits, along the foundation in an area about three feet wide. As the stink bugs land and crawl on the treated area they will pickup the deltamethrin particles and the bug will typically die in a few hours. BUGGSLAYER is not an instant knock-down killer. BUGGSLAYER is a residual killer which means it will keep working for weeks after initial treatment and even rain water will not wash off the microscopic particles. Once the treated area is dry, kids and pets can enter the area. Click here for more information and to purchase.
